Little Mermaid & Star Tours 2 Media Day

Disneyland invited Theme Park Review to come and check out all the awesome new goings on down at the resort! Over the next couple of days we got to see the new Little Mermaid: Ariel's Undersea Adventure at Disney California Adventure, Star Tours 2 at Disneyland, the new SoundSational Parade, a party at the Disneyland Hotel including a sneak peek at the new themed hotel suites, and a glimpse into the future at Disneyland and California Adventure! There are nearly 200 photos and several videos over the next few pages. Thank you for reading!

And a special shout out to all the 'Theme Park Bloggers' who hung out with us -  Arthur Levine from About.com, Rick West from Theme Park Adventure, Lance Hart from Screamscape, and Brady MacDonald from LA Times Funland!

We are here for the media event! The mermaid says "go this way..."

This will probably be the last time I'll ever see this and the entrance to DCA is about to radically change...can't say that I'm sad, to be honest! =)

In the media center, they had one of the ride vehicles hanging out. Kinda cool...

There were also models of all the other "new hotness" going on around the Disneyland Resort.

Wow! This area is looking GREAT! I have not been to the park since the majority of Cars Land was under construction, and it's looks like it's going to be MASSIVE!

Here's what the new Paradise Pier looks like.

Tom Staggs, President of Disney Parks & Resorts joined Alan Menken on stage to officially open The Little Mermaid.

Jodi Benson, the voice of Ariel, came on stage to sing "Part of Your World." This was seriously awesome! Check out the video below...

Bubbles make everything just a little better...

Hooray! Explosions of confetti mark the official opening of The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Undersea Adventure!

Some important people here - Tom Staggs, Alan Menken, Jodi Benson, Pat Carroll...

The Little Mermaid > Whoopi Goldberg! =)

The backdrop as you board the ride vehicles...

Yup, that's a lot of shell... check out a POV video of the entire ride below...

Apparently, the story is told from Scuttle's point of view...

Jodi Benson as a 16 year old mermaid...

"Darling it's better down where it's wetter..."

Sebastian was little...but then again...he IS a crab!

More random fishy fishy fishes...

The animatronics were actually really cool!
